Felger & Mazz: June 5, 2014
Felger and Massarotti opened the day discussing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s contract extension and what it means for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Brady renegotiated his contract with the Patriots in 2010. Did those renegotiations work in the favor of Brady or the organization? Could Brady be in line for another round of contract negotiations? Is Kaepernick worth the 6-year, $126 million extension he received?
In Hour 2, Felger and Mazz got into the Boston Red Sox and last night’s final loss of a three-game sweep by the Cleveland Indians. How would you grade general manager Ben Cherington’s off-season? After seeing the Kaepernick extension, could Brady be looking to renegotiate his current contract? Is having a Stanley Cup Final between the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings a bad thing for the NHL?
During Hour 3 of Felger and Massarotti, the guys preview tonight’s start of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs. Who has more at stake in the Finals? Tim Duncan or LeBron James? Getting into the Boston Celtics and Kevin Love, what kind of impact will Flip Saunders naming himself the Minnesota Timberwolves head coach have on the C’s pursue of Love? Do the Celtics still have a shot of acquiring Love?
In the fourth and final Hour, Felger and Mazz discussed the Red Sox and Dan Shaughnessy’s article about David Ortiz in the Boston Globe. Does it affect his team when David Ortiz “pimps” on a home run? Finally, it’s the Final Word with Marc Bertrand.
